Super Rugby Pick of the Week - Rounds 9, 10, & 11

Super Rugby Pick of the Week - Rounds 9, 10, & 11

You might have noticed that there's been quite a lack of Super Rugby tries on here in the past week or two. There's a few reasons for that, but most importantly, it changes today as we've got all the recaps, with RD's Pick of the Week videos.

While we're now into week 12 of the tournament, below are three great video compilations of our pick of the best tries scored in the last three rounds of play.

They're all great, so kick back and watch all three if possible, but it must be said that some of the tries scored in the last two rounds in particular are absolutely outstanding. The open running, offloading, and running angles on show are fantastic to watch.

The challenge for you now, if you're up for it, would be to pick a top 5 from all of them. There's definitely a few that stand out, and even some tries that weren't able to be included, but I'm sure you'll have your favourites.

When more than one video is posted at once, they're presented as a playlist, so you can hit play once then it will automatically skip to the next video when the first is finished. So on and so forth. If you only want to see the latest round (11), then you can navigate to it easily. Enjoy.

Round 9 Bayside - Blame It On Bad Luck
Round 10 A Day To Remember - The Downfall of Us All
Round 11 Mystery Jets - Alice Springs

His name is Sarel Pretorius. Talent like him are being denied because of Ricky Januarie, the fat political selection.

the woes of Cipriani, Rene Ranger runs through him like he isnt there then gets the ball ripped from him..
Guildford and Dagg can do some serious damage, great post enjoyed it

I think Cipriani's defensive abilities (or lack of) have been found out. Rugby is a physical game, no matter how good the other parts of your game are an inability to tackle and hold on to the ball are pretty hard to overlook...

TY TY TY TY RD. Long overdue. GREAT songs too, especially ADTR, never thought I'd hear that song in a rugby montage, now it owns even more,

To be fair to Cipriani (I am no fan let me tell you), his teammates did little to help him out on either try. He was not the only one who missed the tackle against Ranger and then after the ball was stolen from him, his teammates made piss poor efforts to make a tackle.

Pretorius may be the most exciting 9 in the competition, PDV would be smart to blood him in the trinations.

Dagg always looks good.

Ranger is a monster.

What I like about SH rugby is the risk taking that seems to be encouraged. I think that's the main difference. The defense is not any worse and the skills no better, but the attitude seems to be "have a go, if it doesn't work out we'll live with it". It's sad to see even great French teams like Toulouse play so conservatively.

Sorry RD had to say it. Great job as usual.

I saw some other footage of the Tialata try and the 'canes forwards gave him a bit of stick as they jogged over to celebrate, i imagine along the lines of 'great hit'.

I'm loving the new Super Rugby format. It seems to have breathed new life into the competition. Also the fact that teams previously off the radar like the Highlanders, Reds and Cheetahs are pulling off big wins adds some spice to every game.

Best one has gotta be Benson Stanley's try in Round 10.

^^What spurs an individual to make a comment like that (Anon at 1:34am)?

Is internet anonymity that derisive of a force? Assuming you came to this website to enjoy rugby, what's with the negative attitude towards others who have done the same?

In fairness, the weapons in the All Black's arsenal are unbelieveable. Toeva would walk into any team in the world, Dagg & Jane keeping him out. Freuen, Ranger, Stanley, Nonu, Smith, SBW. Crazy talent. New Zealands new greatest export! Their rugby players.

Is John Afoa considered a fringe player for NZ or a core starter? He just seems to have a little sprinkle of class in the loose you don't see in front rows often. Is he considered to be a bit of a lightweight in the tight?

Guilford is the best ball playing winger in the world atm... he is everywhere, he's got a touch in every try. A sure All Black selection for the summer, he's earned it.

Haha you just can't help but love Super Rugby. As someone said, indeed the new format has brought a new air to the competition, all the temas look set to win any match.

And, RIP the Bulls, time for a new generation to step forward! Bjorn Bassong looks classy. And SArel Pretorious HAS to be in the Tri Nations, step aside Ricky Januarie!

And again, the backs Robbie Deans and Graham Henry have at their disposal come World Cup time is just obscene!

Can't wait 'til September.

Ren Ranger is such a good player with pace , strenght and agility ! Sarel Pretorius is a real try hunter he makes me think to Joost van der Westhuizen ! He may be a the SA surprise for the RWC. I really think that there's a big difference with the north hemisphere in terms of game's vision. I'm french and even a lot of people is according to say that Top 14 is the best competition, i think that Super XV is the most amazing rugby that you can see in the world...

The Army/Navy game attracted twice as many punters as the Crusaders/Sharks game at Twickenham.

The Army must be shit hot at dancing.

Rene Ranger and Hosea Gear are absolute beasts, the pace, size and strength of those boys is frightening.

Also, that cheetahs no.9 is a serious talent, pace pac pace.

I love super rugby and I love rugby dump :-)

I heard something about Nonu today. It's a Boudjellal quote during a french tv show responding to Fabien Galthi. He just gives the information that Nonu will come in Montpellier after the RWC. Some french newspapers talks about that but nothing official. It would be huge for Montpellier, i'll go to the stadium every week end if it's confirmed !

Dear Mr Dump,
I've been a bit slow getting to these - I get this message when I try to watch Round 11:

Sorry about that.

Any way round that? Would be keen to have a gander.
